%. almost 2%. the decision that we made, with technology companies, by inviting twitter to stay in mid market, as they grow from 450 employees, to over 2000. they signal that the beginning of their lease, they would release about 250,000 square feet of the building, but they are exceeding that already. by june of next year, they will have 1000 people moving from their folsom street office to market street. that is what we were wishing would happen. what people do not understand, when they see the twitter deal, it was not so much the twittered deal as it was a mid-american revitalization effort by us. that is what we wanted to do. we wanted to use the ttwitter deal to signal the revitalization of the corridor. and it worked. i'm with another company that had decided to relocate in the same building, but what was happening across the street at a lot of people did not know. on 10th and market, there is a project that has been a hole in the ground for over three years, crescent heights. they did not start that project, about 500 units, because there investors got shaky over the last couple

. there are people and technology that say this is a place they want to be. entrepreneurs say this is where they want to be. when companies like facebook are started at an institution like harvard and a pier, you start to recognize why this is so special and fiber and why innovation is a bleeding heart economy. so let me try to give some brief introductions about our panel today. i have to confess, i only just met one of our panelists, lee said dyson, the ceo of coverity. she got a ph.d. in physics from mit but felt the urge to come out here to california and she did her research at stanford and lawrence berkeley. that is an indication we are getting smart people like her out to california to start companies like hers. 15 employees in 2008. it is interesting, we talk about cloud computing and these technology companies, but she takes electronic waste that is rich in carbon and recycles that into oil for plastics and a variety of other things. i wish i had more time to talk to you and get to know you because i am sure there's an interesting story that you will really enjoy hearing f

front of technology. but to be really well educated and a specialist in any one of those things, requires a very deep immersion, deep immersion software or bioinfomatics or the various underlying sciences. and i wish i had had a better formal scientific education when i was younger. that more than anything would have helped me, i think. >> rose: here's you what said, my undergraduate degree was in history. i wish i would have been smart enough to excel in math, fitics-- physics or biology because the voyagers and adventurers come from there. >> that's where they start from. and yes, i don't quarrel with any part of that sentiment. i think those are today's voyagers. and they start off with a grounding in those particular sciences. >> rose: and do the business school grads become transactional people and go to wall street and go to financial institutions? >> it's obviously, charlie, unfair to paint a broad-brush here. and there's some very talented people who come out of the business schools. but-- and who join these companies. and a very vital parts of helping the companies get

from previous reports that we have read, that technology and the enhanced use of auto maition and technology have been a recurring theme for the department of building and inspection and i didn't see any emphasis and there was no mention of that in terms of the budget or at least not with any emphasis, i also note having red last year's grand jury report that the city has a very, very poor track record of implementing technology and yet, it seems to have been established that you know, hand held devices in the field, and better coordination of records from different departments that there are a wide variety of ways that technology could improve the efficiency of the staff, and the customer service, if you will. so i wondered, where that is in the budget, and what safe guards that the technology could be properly implemented. >> thank you. >> hi, again, robert, i was just wondering about the comments of the open notices of violation. and my question is how are the down stream effects not relevant? the permits that are applied for the inspection fees, the reinspection fees? i mean,

they have a right to privacy, you have to get a search warrant regardless of the technology being used. that could be for thermal camera senate is just as applicable to unmanned aircraft. a lot of folks feel the fourth amendment does not offer enough protections. why do you think that? why do you think that if you give this new tool to law enforcement, they will start violating people's privacy. there are organizations that do fly on an aircraft. they do not use them to spy on -- there are organizations that do fly these aircraft, but they do not use them to spy. host: ben gielow is our guest to talk about domestic unmanned vehicles. rose is on our independent line. go ahead. caller: i have a comment and a question. the reason i am and independent is because of this issue. the 70,000 rooms that were approved by congress, both parties, including my two senators from tennessee, is another issue where congress enacts something and does not ask the question about what is the into result. we have a president who thinks it is all right to kill american citizens overseas. what is to keep that

technology to tap into that shale. >> we're not using it. >> we have -- we're using it in larger and larger amounts. what's happened in the united states is we have had a shale gas revolution already with more potential. the technology is good. environmental standards are very high because the industry is making a major effort to ensure that there are no major mistakes that cause problems. so this will do two things. it creates a lot of jobs in this industry but it also lowers the cost of chemicals, it lowers the cost of gas, gasses backing out coal, backing out natural gas that we otherwise would import and we're also increasing production of petroleum. we used to be dependent on imports for 60% of our petroleum and now 40%. we'll be potentially an exporter of natural gas, government regulations have to be worked out but we could be exporting natural gas if the right decisions are made to do that. the amounts will obviously depend on certain decisions. wreel be at least in a position to export natural gas which no one would have imagined ten years ago. >> exactly right. there were r

marissa mayer on the future of technology. and in a half hour, an inquiry on the security on the korean peninsula. >>> secretary of state john kerry will be at the university of virginia for what's being described as his first major speech since being confirmed. that's at 11 a.m. eastern. and then at 12:30, the assistant secretary of state for conflict resolution and stabilization speaks at the council on foreign relations about iraq and afghanistan. >> the communism of china basically is communism in name only these days, and it preserved the power of the members of the communist party. but they basically threw most ideology aside when saw ping opened the country up, and it's now become a capitalist haven. they talk at great length at these party congresses, but it's all about preserving the party's power economically as the country continues to grow because they threw aside most vestiges of communism a long time ago. in north korea it's all about preserving the power of the military and the kim dynasty, as you have there. and, again, it's, out really has nothing to do with, i think, w

really to me a technology geek's really dream, is to have all of this data available so that we can mine them in different ways and very creative ways. and i want to say, again, as someone who has worked in government for 23 years, i've been at those departments like dpw and others where we think in one dimension. this is where we clean the streets. this is how often we clean it. this is when we tell the cars to move off. and this is what dpw does and it does it pretty well within that constraint. if you shared that data with companies who are looking at where do people live, how -- what their patterns are, we can get a lot more creative. when we open our data, when we suggest to departments that they can work in collaboration, when we open up and establish within our city contracts that the companies that do service for us do not own the data that they generate from us, that they will have a contractual obligation to share that with the city so that we can mine that to the rest of the city, that's advance of opportunities for everybody. i know at the heart of sharing this data, the

. .. the new technology would be the answer, but 12 years ago technology had not yet caught up at the station. last year he gave thanks to the production team that pushed themselves to deliver some thing never been done before, a marvelous movie was created. this is another example of why we go to the movies to be astonished into dream as well. it was all of this technology, innovation and creativity, ticket price to consumers has remained remarkably stable over many, many of us, roughly dollars. other than listening to music, watching free tv programming, the most affordable, accessible entertainment is watching a picture inside the state-of-the-art theater. that's why they've told theaters continue to try were people than all theme parks and major sporting event combine. it has never been a better time to be a consumer of movies and television. because it is not up to more people in workplaces want to watch them more times across multiple platforms, the film and television industries innovating to meet that demand. today's movies and television shows can be viewed in theaters on big

i-ti a technology company in the 1.0 world. it was a company that created technology to connect citizens better with government * . i ran it for almost nine years. and when i was elected to office four years ago, i was unfortunately more surprised than i wanted to be about how far behind san francisco government was. this was very 2008, 2009. with you i'm really proud of the leaps and bounds we have taken as a city * . i was proud in 2010 to help move forward legislation to really bring together city departments to work in a coordinated way with our committee on information technology. to help create a chief information officer position for the city. i was also proud to work with then mayor newsome in passing the first generation of open data legislation that we have. but as our civil grand jury in june pointed out, our i-t in san francisco is still in need of a culture shock. and this is where all of us come in today. we have 200 data sets that have already been put out there, but by and large the data sets put out by city government are data sets that i think show us in a very

republicans and their problem with technology and stuart, this quote caught my eye "romney's senior strategist stuart stevens, may well be remembered by historians as the last guy to run a presidential campaign who never tweeted." >> really made -- if i had tweeted in this campaign this whole discussion we've been having about the second amendment would be replaced about the first amendment and whether it should apply to tweeting. listen i don't think that it would be a great mistake if we felt that technology in itself is going to save the republican party. technology is something to a large degree you can go out and purchase and if we think there's an off the shelf solution that you can with the republican party it's wrong. you know, we've had a lot of chance since the campaign to spend time with the obama folks and sometimes they had better technology. some cases we have better technologiment we don't have 140 character problem in the republican party. we have a larger problem that we have to look at and be patient about it. and trying to think that there's one solution like this

technologies. but what came first, most often, was a water supply system. the basic system is essentially the same as we used back in the 19th century. and in some cases, some of the same pipes. grusheski: philadelphia was the first american city to develop a water system and to take on as a municipal responsibility water delivery to all of its citizens. when william penn laid out the city, he actually chose a spot of land that had a lot of groundwater. however, by 1730, 30,000 people lived within the first seven blocks of philadelphia, next to the delaware river. well, 30,000 people caused filth in the city and polluted their water sources. the groundwater was not potable. and in one year, 1/6 of the population died of yellow fever. now, they didn't know at the time that yellow fever was carried by mosquitoes. but the health issue was major in that first movement to build a water system. narrator: so they set out to find the cleanest source of water. although the majority of philadelphia's water now comes from the delaware river, early engineers found that development along the waterfron

generations. they have access to modern technology. they have social networking. they have smart phones. they have the internet and the use of technology then allows them to access questionnaires about their substance use, to participate in social networking support groups, and to link up with electronic health records or their counselors and to have online counseling if they're reluctant to go to face-to-face counseling. so technology offers a great deal of promise that young people are more comfortable with and use on a regular basis. so this is a revolutionary time for our youth and we hope to take advantage of the technological advances to promote recovery.
